JTOpen JDBC driver support for application availability

The JTOpen JDBC driver includes features that can help application developers reduce or eliminate application downtime in a Db2® Mirror environment.

  1. The application can identify alternate servers to use if the connection to the current server is dropped. When using Db2 Mirror, you might want to set the alternate servers to be the primary node, the secondary node, and/or the disaster recovery (DR) partition.
  2. Configured number of seconds between automatic attempts to reestablish the connection
  3. Configured number of attempts to reestablish the connection before failing.
  4. Control for whether to attempt to reestablish the connection with the preferred node.
